Guild Wars 2 unveils new retro-gaming style adventures
Seems incredible but it's not an April's Fool! The "Super Adventure Box" becomes real today on Guild Wars 2, will last 1 month and will bring the player in an old-style '80s retro gaming adventures full of electronic music, pixelated rabbits, monster and environments! It's nostalgia time!
“It started out as a fun side project idea”, laughed Colin Johanson, Game Director at ArenaNet.“Originally, we were going to have a laugh with a fake 8-bit update, but the more the team worked on it the more we realised we had something really cool on our hands. We figured; the gaming community are really going to love this, let’s expand on the concept of the Living World in Guild Wars 2 and make it for real”.
You can access the "Super Adventure Box" by visiting Moto, a crafty asuran inventor, in the asuran capital of Rata Sum.
